If they were in a bunker, how did the authorities know the guy had a gun, and that the child was in danger?
If anyone was going to die, I'm glad it was the right person this time.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
I'm betting the had some sort of camera looking into the bunker
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Glad the boy is ok. And one more bg is off the streets. And it proves that firearms do save lives and not just do evil things.
I'm glad that the boy is safe.
This line in the linked story is the one that disturbs me.
Neighbors and officials had described Dykes as a survivalist with "anti-government" views.
The media seems to be rapidly turning that into an excuse to come and get you.

Sounds like they used an Explosive entry and it gave them the shock and awe they needed to to take him out before his brain processed the threat

Give me a minute before I post again.
I am sorry that this man went off the deep end. Sadly he had to "snap," kill someone, and take the young boy hostage. He had to die. I am glad it ended the way it did.
Hard to know - they're being very tight-lipped about the entry and it was stated somewhere tonight that the reason had to do with wanting to perhaps use the same techniques in future and similar situations. So they want to not publish how they did it. Makes sense (though I'd like to know more myself).
From what I read the neighbors heard a loud explosion then rifle fire. It would seem they either had manged to get c4 or the like rigged onto the door if it was that sturdy without him knowing or the door was weak enough they used the usual flash and crash entry using a flash bang.
I have noticed that the media seems to be highlighting his anti government views somehow to the him being a murderer and kidnapper. Quite a leap to connect the two seems to me.
Glad the boy is out safe. I was about to give up that he would shoot himself and the child.

Snapping is fine; off the deep end is fine. Just so long as you don't harm others in the process. This guy went over the line ... and got taken down for it. A big kudos to the folks involved in resolving the situation and helping to get the kid back alive.
Hopefully the kid wasn't too abused. At minimum, he's going to have a rough thing to think about for the rest of his life.
Proposed: that the kidnapper's "pelt" be staked to a tree and his head mounted on a pike as warning to others.
Strange, that a whole school district in the area and neighboring areas were shut down, despite it being only a lone idiot who was contained/cornered.Originally Posted by From the article

The news is saying this morning that some kind of "hidden camera" was used. Maybe a fiber optic camera lowered down through the 4" pipe?
I'm so happy that little boy got out alive. It was gut wrenching to hear that he was crying for his Mother. If anyone is going to need therapy after this incident, it's probably her.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Hope somehow the boy didn't have to see the guy killed - horrible memory for anyone to live with.
